    • BankFodder    Are you able to help me with whole process if we start legal action ?  If yes i'm fully agree  with 5% expenses and to send the email now    
    • It's a novel weird approach, yes!  But the moot point is that I think they are doing this regularly. Meaning they are repeatedly diddling hmrc out of vat (I mean in conjunction with the builder) They are never going to win their claim that I pay for these works.  They were completely unnecessary.
    • Thank you. I've downloaded and filled out the forms, and I'm ready to send them over. Before I do, could you please clarify the following for me? Once the form has been completed it must be sworn i.e. signed before a Commissioner for Oaths (e.g. a Solicitor), or an Officer of a County Court appointed by the Judge to take affidavits, or a Justice of the Peace (Magistrates Court). (This service is available at most County Court Hearing Centre, free but an appointment may be necessary). The witness to the respondent’s signature must provide a full postal address. If the form has not been properly witnessed, the TEC will not be able to process it. One question - do I need to get a solicitor to swear this? If so, would the solicitor sign on the TE9 form? I don't see a designated space for their signature, so would they just sign anywhere on the form? Please forgive my ignorance on this process. I want to make sure I'm submitting everything properly. Thank you in advance for your help clarifying this for me.

    • So, you want to argue that they didn’t add VAT, and so should have charged you more ….. that’s a novel approach!

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Sandwich chain to offer unpaid work experience to 500 young people to head off recruitment challenge posed by Brexit

 

 

Apparently not too many people impressed so now they are agreeing to pay them.

 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/03/25/pret-criticised-offering-teenagers-sandwiches-exchange-work/

 

After online anger, Pret A Manger has scrapped plans to offer sandwiches to teenagers in exchange for their time on an unpaid internship.

 

The chief executive of the sandwich chain has been forced to promise to pay interns after members of the public threatened to boycott the sandwich chain.

 

Pret is said to be on the cusp of a staffing crisis, as just one in 50 of job applicants to the sandwich chain is British. If foreign workers avoid the country because of Brexit, or choose to return home, Pret could find itself short of staff.

We dont know what is going to happen with Brexit and in any case, as I understand it - youngsters have to stay on at school/ college until they are 18 years old now.

 

 

All employees whether they are British or European are supposed to be paid the new living wage. It is wrong to say that British youngsters dont want to work, they simply want to be paid a living wage.

could it be that the story was put out to just be a scare about the effects of brexit? Not at all unlike the output of Countryfile on the BBC. Yesterday it was the CAP and farming subsidies. They glossed over the fact that golf courses and my cousin's back garden attract a EU subsidy just for existing rather than growing crops.

[Pret] pointed out that the placements "are to give participants experience of what it's like working in the industry".

 

Well, the "offer" certainly does offer an insight in to the industry. Young people being taken advantage of with little reward for the work done. Scraps of food for a days work harks back to the feudal era when the serfs fought over crumbs from the lord's table.

Can I clarify on Citizenb's comment that the national living wage varies due to the age.

 

I think the national living wage for school leavers is woeful but I guess that is because the government wants to encourage them to stay in education.
